Björk’s Biophilia

Partnering with Icelandic singer andartist Björk, and the New York Public Library, CMOM presents Biophilia, a suite of nine musical compositions with accompanying games, images and videos that encourages users to explore the connections between music, nature and technology.

Using provided iPads, CMOM educators will conduct workshops, guiding families through the Biophilia apps to foster creativity and inspire children to tap into their own musical creativity. In addition to discovering Björk's music, children and families will also explore the themes of Biophilia while enjoying hands-on science experiments, movement, dance and even music theory.
